The Walkabout Aboriginal design game mat makes multicultural education fun and engaging. Teach ideas about Aboriginal culture the way all kids love to learn - with play! Let this Indigenous interpretation of ‘Snakes and Ladders’ get your children using all their senses. Move around the room to play on a large floor game mat, or share a tabletop version with a friend.

As the game unfolds your players will vie for the 'Walkabout' spaces where their special cultural knowledge shoots them forward. If they're unlucky, they'll land on a 'Sacred Site' and must go back to learn respect. This game is suitable for 2-4 players, for ages 3 and up, and includes 1 dice.

Recycled Mats stocks a wide range of unique cultural mats, doormats and educational games just perfect for bringing colour and quality multicultural content into any school, kindy or home. 

The Walkabout game mat is the creative design of respected elder and Indigenous graphic designer Uncle Barry Watson. This large Walkabout game mat is constructed like a jigsaw from 15 mat squares, numbered on the back for fast set up and constructed from recycled car tyres for environmentally friendly, robust play. When not in use the mat can be displayed or disassembled and stored away.

“This resource is fantastic because it has so many educational uses for Early Childhood – Co-operative Play, Art, Indigenous Symbols, Counting and Fine Motor Skills. This locally made product is therefore excellent for embedding Indigenous Culture. Everyone who borrows it from our library say they use it in so many different ways! We recommend this as a resource that can be used over and over.”From the Noah’s Ark Team"

The children at Yuingi use the table top one frequently, they love it. Thank you so much great addition to our resources I help run a program in Castlemaine in Central Victoria for Primary School Indigenous students. I bough one of your big mats and the kids love it. I also bought your Walkabout Game and I have added a twist that others might like. I have made 2 sets of cards with questions on them one set hard (eg: who was the first Aboriginal politician) and the other easy (what dies the yellow circle on the Aboriginal Flag represent). If they land on "walkabout" they have to answer an easy question to be allowed to go on Walkabout, if they land on "Sacred Site" they have to answer a hard question to be allowed to go past it. In either if you get the answer wrong you go back. I use facts that are local under the guidance of our Elders. Julie
